Organic Krush, a developing Long Island healthy eatery chain, opened its fifth location in Rockville Center prior this month. The restaurant is charged as “a lifestyle eatery” and serves organic “food and juice free of GMOs, pesticides, hormones, and fake ingredients.” The Rockville Center location, at 27 N. Park Avenue, joins areas in Woodbury, Amagansett, Plainview, and Roslyn.
The cafe and eatery serve cold-pressed juices, smoothies, breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks and açaí bowls. Proprietors Michelle Walrath and Fran Paniccia met when they were raising their kids and bonded over their love of nourishment and healthy living, says Walrath. Paniccia is a Bayville native, while Walrath was brought up in West Hempstead.
She discloses to Patch why the accomplices picked Rockville Center for their most current Organic Krush location.
“Rockville Centre has always had a great, happening vibe. Growing up in West Hempstead, this was our main hangout spot—I went to Sacred Heart with a lot of amazing RVC girls. The grand opening has been going great. Our guests are so enthusiastic and supportive, and seem to be happy that we are all organic, and have lots of gluten-free and paleo and vegan options.”
Reflecting on her organization’s fast development, Walrath says she thinks Long Islanders are inviting a simple method to complement their healthy routines by getting to the nourishment that accommodates their healthy living objectives while out on the town.
“We all work and move at a pretty fast pace, and have realized that to be truly healthy, it’s important to eat food that fuels, that energizes, that makes you feel great. I know Fran and I are attached to feeding our kids food that is free of hormones, antibiotics, pesticides, GMOs, food dyes, etc. If you can’t get that type of food when you are out and about running errands, going to gyms, then it becomes too easy to fail on healthy living.”
A few clients stop by two times per day she said to ensure they remain on track with their eating regimen objectives.
The Organic Krush organization mission might extend, Walrath says, to community stores, college campuses, airports and cookbooks however for the present the two female entrepreneurs (and the two moms of four children) are concentrating on expanding what she sees as vital education and availability of healthy nourishment.
“If people know what they are putting in their bodies they will have a much easier time gaining life-long health.”
Organic Krush offers daily specials, breakfast throughout the day, develops people’s bowls, salads and wraps, and to-go dinners.
